今シーズンはまだビーチにちゃんと行ってなかった!

ということで今朝のウォーキングは少し足を延ばして一番近いビーチへ行きました。

これができるから、今住んでいるところから引っ越せないのです(笑)。靴を脱いで波打ち際を歩いき、地球とちゃんと繋がってきました。

I did not make occasions to go to beaches this summer, and I extended my regular walking up to the nearest beach this morning.

It was just before the beach gets busy with people coming out for morning swims.

Water was clear.

I soaked my bear foot on the water’s edge.

It was more than just refreshing,…. it was more like something making me relieved.  ….is it so called the ‘earthing’?

Kept walking along the edge then saw some art works by nature.  Lucky that it was before being squashed by the crowd.

The ripples created beautiful patterns on the sand which made me imagine something like smooth fabric.

Thank you our mother earth for this, i greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you for stopping by.

お立ち寄りくださりありがとうございました。

 

 

The Laughing Kookaburras

The lovely couple perched on the tree branch i passed by on my morning walk. They must have been romantic and humming or even chatting about the impeccable summer day that just began.

Yes they bursted out laughing,😊

気持ちよく晴れた或る夏の朝、ウォーキング途中で見かけた可愛い笑いカワセミのペア。同じ方を見ながら、何やら囁き合うのかと思いきや、期待を裏切らない豪快な笑い(鳴き)声。そうだ、これが彼ら流の囁きだったのかもとこちらも笑顔に。☺️

Thank you for stopping by.

The first post of 2021

Happy new year to my WP friends and visitors.  The world is still under the chaos, but still, I hope you had a fair and good time in the ’20/’21 festive season, as your wished manner. 

2020 was unusual year for most of people.  Yes, 2020 was very special year to me, not only by the virus and all the subsequent impacts it brought to us globally, but also by a lot of changes and things happened in my life, which I did not imagine a year ago the point where I am standing now.  It was like, I forgot about a lot of alarms I had set to bell sometime in my life story, and they started buzzing one after another.

I feel there is no more forgotten alarm to buzz, and feel it is time to be back on the network little by little.  

My 2021 resolution is to push my boundary away.  

明けましておめでとうございます。

昨年はコロナをはじめ、数々の出来事で世界が揺れました。誰もが少なからず影響を受けたのではないかと思いますが、去年の年末からこのお年始、少しでも安らぐ時間が過ごせていらしたら幸いです。

私も去年はこのウィルスとは無関係のところで、私生活にたくさんの変化と出来事があり、一年前には想像もしていないところに着地したようです。

自分に起きていることの模様眺めをしながら、大きな動きは一旦収まったように見えますので、しばらく遠ざかっていたブログに少しずつ戻ろうと思っています。

今年は自分の中にある境界線を押し広げる事でしょうか。小心者故にビビってばかりですが、愉しみながら歩みを進めていきたいと思います。

2021 bring it on!

A piece of work of the day 36 ~ Bleu

Another patchwork for the birthday card for friend who loves Bleu and Shiraz.

The two are very different in nature and are uniquely beautiful. I used Bleu for the model of the patchwork likely because his moon face was easy to modeling. 🙂

Shiraz (left) and Bleu

The both turned 15 years old this year. I will write about it on another blog.

我が家のブルシラこと、ブルーとシラズという2匹の猫を本当に可愛がってくれる友人へ充てた、バースデーカードのパッチワーク。モデルはブルさん。

丸顔でユーモアいっぱいの彼を狙ってみました。似てるかな?

Thank you for stopping by.

A piece of work of the day 35 ~ Love❤️Love❤️Love❤️

This was the card i made for my friend’s birthday back in June.

I brought some remaining wrapping papers or origami craft papers I collected, cut or hand cut them into small small pieces, then glued them randomly filling the inside of the heart template.Such a fun experimental work as it got.💕

友人のバースデーカードに、今年はパステルじゃなく、折り紙やラッピングペーパーを少しずつ取っておいたものでパッチワーク。

やりはじめたら愉しくて🎵

ハートがちょっとぷっくりし過ぎたかな😆

A piece of work of the day 34 ~ Dragon The Guardian Deity

I drew this dragon for someone who was born in the year of dragon and turned the birthday in June.

I found that there are several interpretations about this mythological creature, and I actually interpret it a guardian or spirit.

I hope year 2020 must bring lights and smiles at him despite that it’s been difficult year for most of us.

去る今年6月、とある方への誕生日カードにと描いたのは龍(ドラゴン)でした。普段描く機会の無い題材でしたが、辰年生まれの彼にとってはラッキーな神獣に違いないと思い、ドラゴンに初挑戦。

洋の東西それぞれにおいて、昔からこの架空の生き物は沢山の題材に使われてきました。

今回私も縁起の良いスピリットとして描きすすめ、終わってみたらとても神聖な気持ちになりました。

今年は誰にとっても難しい一年ですが、来年の誕生日迄、彼に光と笑顔が一つでも多くある事を祈っています。

Thank you for stopping by.

End of summer

A piece of work of the day 33 ~Mermaid Magic ~

Mermaid Magic is the name of a blended essential oil produced by Kayse Williams, the co-founder of Sacred Alchemy Inc.

Kayse and I met in Tucson, Arizona in 2019 for the first time.  I visited her and her partner Gary Fleck seven months later in Arkansas, then shared another sweet time in Sedona last month.  Gary Fleck is (well, it’s not just me of knowing him so) the legendary crystal mining engineer who does crystal cut, polish, and make jewelries from the design.

Kayse produces number of blended essential oils aiming for healing and/or pleasure, all of which holds high frequency and struck me something when I first scented one of her range, named ‘Dolphin Joy’.

When I took Mermaid Magic on my hand first time and scented it, the world of the oil took me into so-called Kayse’s world, which was fantastic and warm, supporting, being embraced with love.  It was literally magic.

The scent was enough to urge me to express how I felt in pastel drawing.
